If so, where?
Probably not, considering how much it costs and the amount of expertise required to understand the data.

Most suspension tuning, at least at the grassroots motorsport level, is done via on-track testing.

Ohlins actually has a 7 post in house and does it for every suspension they make.

I honestly doubt they have ever had an OE e90/e92m3 on that rig.
Can you find out if they did?
And if so, what spring rates and which Ohlins shocks did they use.
Thanks

there TTX stuff is amazing. i have it on my race bike and it just blows away any other susp out there. i am sure it is amazing on the car too. they have this CSC button on the shock which is like revalving right on the track and is so sensitive it picks up even the little smallest bumbs. you can see it working when the bike is in the back of the truck going down the road. where a normal shock doesn't even move

here is there TTX shock for the bike

So there are 2 sets of TTX Ohlins Racing Dampers for the e90/e92 chassis

CLUB SPORT 2-WAY
- TTX46-CR (Front) 2-Way
- TTX40 (Rear) 2-Way

SERIOUS BUSINESS KIT
- TTX46-MT (Front) 4-Way
- TTX40 (Rear) 4-Way

The serious business kit is $7k MSRP ($4k for the Fronts/$3k for the Rears) -- so I figure the 2-Way Kit is maybe $5k
Wish there was a market for this kit like there is for superchargers out here in the US

REALLY?? -- I thought ura track whore

Anything less then a DA kit on our cars does not belong.

At the least the R&T Kit should have the Twin Tube DA shocks -- or no one buys.
$3500 for the Kit -- and everyone's running Ohlins - case closed.
$4500 for the kit -- and the number stays low
$5500 and ridzaho and 2 other guys are in

Where did you get the info from? Also does the price include mounts and springs?

SA is fine for the street, but not for the track. Bump and rebound, though not mutually exclusive, address slightly different aspects of handling. For slightly more money you can get DA, which gives you much better adjustability to tune the handling of your car. A lot of people get SA and later realize that they need one more knob... at which time you will either have to spend more money to get DA or just feel helpless

From our conversations you are good enough of a driver to realize the difference between different set ups.

I saw the prices on 2 different European websites. I'll try to find them and post links later.
The prices and specs were specifically for a front set TTX46 and a rear set, so i think its shocks only, but having GC or any other competent BMW suspension tuner put a kit around these should not be too difficult or expensive.
The 4-way kit is also sold through BMW Motorports for the e90 320si WTCC chassis... but i think thats with a real coilover in the rear and a different front suspension config (different pickup points).

The 4-way and the CS (2-way) shocks both list on Ohlins website with part numbers under BMW e90.
Im sure if someone (you) picked up the Club Sport shocks for the e90 and sent it to Ground Control to make a kit ... this would be "the" track kit to have. I know i would.
My e90m3 race car project is no more. But at one point, we were talking to Penske about their 3-way shocks (model 7650 i think) and the price was VERY reasonable compared to others ($900 per shock).
And I think AE performance put the Ohlins Club Sports on Paul Walker's e92m3 ... so this has def been done.
